The Ketogenic Diet & Kidney Disease

Published on 22nd Jan, 2018

Dr. Berg talks about keto and kidney disease. A ketogenic diet is not a high protein diet, it's only consuming 3-6 oz of protein with each meal. There is a condition called ketoacidosis, which is different that nutritional ketosis, and your pH does not raise to any danger levels. Keto can also increase the uric acid, but if you consume enough vegetables, again, you will be fine. The potassium in vegetables is very kidney protective. But high sugar, and high insulin is damaging to the kidney more than anything else. Take a look at a diabetic - they usually end up with long term kidney damage. GMO foods can also effect the kidney, so eat organic.
